Weight is down, by a significant amount. McLaren claims 100 kilograms even, meaning the 600LT should be 220 pounds lighter than the 570S. The splitter, sills, diffuser, and rear wing are all made from carbon fiber and coincidentally produce that same 220 pounds of downforce at 155 mph.

Our biggest quibble is with the engine, which is underpowered. The Forester debuts a revised 2.5-liter horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine that generates 182 horsepower and 176 lb-ft of torque. It is now direct injection and the continuously variable transmission was redesigned with a lighter and quieter torque converter.
